Wow... worst nightmare!

I don't understand how it went over, must have been way more off camber than it looked. The thing that really sucks, if he hadn't backed up, it would have never happened, looked like he had it made if he'd have stayed on the gas. I'm impressed how they both kept their arms in the jeep... I always harp to my passengers to do that but actually doing it is harder than it seems.

They always are, pictures and video never do them justice.

He rolled a bit backwards which really wasn't backwards but perpendicular to the hill.. then a lil tap on the brakes to stop his backward movement with the passenger front tire already lifted off the ground and over she went.

Scary shat.

Short wheelbase
Super soft springs
Momentum of backing up
a litte extra weight on the rear

I think all of that factored into it also.


Wives always have such insightful commentaries too....lmao.

Sure hope the wife doesnt see this one...scary.
Looks like it stalled, then he let it roll back... Been there and glad I have an auto now.
Glad everyone was ok.

HAHA, "Hey, Did you get that on film?!"

Looks like letting off the brake would have saved that one.


First film looked like a rough ride

They had an auto, which will roll back just like a manual in an up hill situation when you let off the gas.

Pain heals, chicks dig scars, glory lasts forever.

Most rollovers I see happen this exact way. Letting a jeep roll backwards on any plane is dangerous, as your not as experienced backing up as going forwards. Like backing a trailer its hard to tell which way to steer towards. Better to keep your foot on the brake then roll backwards and turn the wheel. Hard to do when it happens so fast..... Looks like his tires were way to big for the lift as well..
